Weatherill Papers: personal papers

These personal records of the Weatherill family are a miscellaneous collection, most of which appears to have survived by chance. The series of correspondence seems to have been kept by Weatherill's parents and there is a bundle of papers in the miscellaneous section which appears to have been kept by Lyn Weatherill. The army papers are more clearly a collection assembled by Weatherill himself.
